    This really hit the spot. I have lots left and it won't be wasted as the temperature is going down tonight for the next few days. I could eat this all the time. (NOTE: The only item subbed was the chicken broth; I used vegetable.) - 3/6/19

    What a great way to use up some extra broccoli. I didn't have any Velveeta, so I used sharp cheddar instead. Next time I'll get the Velveeta because the cheddar didn't melt and meld completely. Regardless, this is a delicious way to enjoy the world's most hated veggie. - 4/7/21

    Chicken broth is always as great alternative to half and half and whole milk. Taste great. - 1/26/20

    I don't much like Velveeta, I prefer the roux with a smaller amount of white cheddar. - 10/13/19

    This is delicious! My one big concern is the amount of sodium in this recipe. Iím not sure how to reduce that without taking away from the yummy flavor. Next time, I think Iím going to make it with unsalted bone broth. That will reduce the sodium and add to the protein. - 10/1/19
